Many of us are already aware that there are many factors, such as heat, that can affect sperm counts. So what happens when it’s the day of the IUI and the male partner has a fever?
The short answer is… nothing.
At least not immediately anyway. The truth is that a fever today will likely not affect the sperm needed for an IUI now.
We talk a lot about women and female hormones when it comes to fertility, but what about the men?
Is more testosterone better? Does it make the sperm super?
Actually, the contrary occurs. Testosterone is very important for men as it is responsible for normal libido, muscle tone, feeling of well being and sperm health.
